Sebastian Molineus said the World Bank will support the Georgian Government's efforts in human capital development to help the country transform into the regional leader, PM Bakhtadze’s press office reported.
At the meeting the two officials hailed investment projects carried out in Georgia with the financial support of the World Bank. They also emphasised the need to promote innovative projects and Georgia's "far-reaching" educational reform.
